Therapy Centre teamA wide range of experienced, dedicated therapists
DR TAMMY ESRICH
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Edinburgh University in 1997 and have worked for 20 years as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS. I currently works part time in an adult Palliative Care Team in Worcestershire.
I am a member of the British Psychological Society and is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I am a qualified Reiki Master and have practiced Reiki for over 12 years. I live in awe of the miraculous results I get to see on people and animals. Many people have never experienced complete inner peace until they try Reiki.
It is such a privelege to start them on their journey and watch the healing take place physically and emotionally.
With a degree in Human Biology I have always been in awe of the body and it’s ability to heal itself given the right conditions. A trip to Australia in 2007 was the beginning of my relationship with Bowen and my initial training was completed in 2010. I have recently included Kinesiology (muscle testing) into my practice. I am fully insured and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
I care passionately about the benefits of massage. I have a Massage Training Institute Practitioner Diploma in Holistic Massage & Bodywork, Anatomy, Phsyiology & Pathology Level 4. I work to the MTI Code of Ethics, and I am registered with the MTI, The Federation of Holistic Therapist and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council. I am a qualified baby massage and baby yoga teacher with Hands on Babies. My degree is in Healthcare, and I have a PGCE in Higher Education!
I am also a Childbirth & Parenting Consultant, and an Associate Midwifery lecturer.
